MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Mexican newspaper says Donald Trump caught Mexico "off guard" by accepting an invitation from the country's president to visit. Trump is making that visit today, hours before he delivers a highly-anticipated immigration speech. One security analyst says the only reason Trump was invited by President Enrique Pena Nieto (PAYN'-yuh nee-EH'-toh) is that the Mexican leader wanted Hillary Clinton to visit -- but that meant he had to invite both. The analyst, Alejandro Hope, says, "Nobody thought Trump would accept first." And he wonders, "What's in it for Mexico?"

MEXICO CITY (AP) — At least two demonstrations are planned in Mexico City as Mexicans express anger about the visit of Donald Trump. Former first lady Margarita Zavala wrote in a tweet aimed at Trump: "Even though you may have been invited, we want you to know you're not welcome." She said, "We Mexicans have dignity, and we reject your hate speech." She's considered a potential presidential candidate for 2018. Mexico's president's office hasn't said where or when the meeting will be held, possibly in a bid to avoid protests outside the meeting site.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Hillary Clinton campaign says Clinton is getting the support of another leading Republican. James Clad is former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush. In a statement, he will call Trump an "incoherent amateur" -- and will say that giving Trump "the keys to the White House this November will doom us to second or third-class status." Clinton today will be addressing the American Legion's annual convention in Cincinnati. The campaign says she'll call for "maintaining America's military and diplomatic leadership in the world."

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are slightly lower on Wall Street as a thin batch of earnings gave investors little to get excited about. Stocks also finished yesterday with a slight loss, as a summer slowdown continues on Wall Street.

RODANTHE, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina's Outer Banks have been spared from a tropical weather system that had been moving toward the state for two days. A county emergency management official says there were "no impacts" on areas such as Cape Hatteras. A hotel manager says residents and tourists saw less than an inch of rain.
